Liverpool's incredible season sees them end the year just missing out on that elusive Premier League title, but to finish the campaign with a Champions League win. It's not a bad consolation is it?!
But the Champions League final is about winners
And here come the ecstatic Liverpool players to collect their winners' medals, as they stand on the podium presentation waiting for the big moment…
…that moment when Jordan Henderson lifts the trophy to officially crown Liverpool as champions of Europe! Much more pyro than the Europa League celebrations that greeted Chelsea on Wednesday.
Liverpool players form a guard of honour for Spurs players
Spurs go up to collect their runners-up medals, walking right past the Champions League trophy in the process. Highest form of mental torture for a professional footballer?
An 'expected goals' graphic for you stats fans out there…
Spurs had the best chances, but even they were not clear-cut ion what was otherwise quite a scrappy game. Bottom line? Clinical Liverpool make Spurs pay.

Lots of dejection among the Tottenham Hotspur players
They are not fools. It might be the first and last time they appear in a Champions League final – almost certainly in a Spurs shirt, and the final just seemed to pass them by.
The fight and effort was there, but the quality? Wasn't there tonight even if they did dictate much of the play.
